A research conducted by Wake Forest University reveals that images showing the left side of your face look much prettier than the ones with a right side pose. This is so because the left side of the face shows more emotions than the right one. This trick can best be used while getting clicked for wedding pictures.

What you should do: To get the perfect picture with the right kind of emotion, try and showcase the left part of your face more.

Well, it is not just your face which will be in the limelight on your wedding, but your hands too will be playing an important role. So, read on these 6 Tips for Indian Brides to Have Photo Ready Hands on Their Wedding

Models never go wrong with their photographs, as they master the art of posing in front of the camera without looking too unnatural. So, you can also follow their path to look confident and beautiful. Always strike a side pose, exposing only three fourth of your body to look slim in your photographs. Also, never stare directly into the camera or you may end up with photos where your eyes are half shut or closed.

What should you doKeep your belly in (not so much that you are not able to breathe), stand erect and straighten your spine and shoulder, while getting a picture clicked.

Always go easy on your foundation. Though foundation makes your skin look flawless, but its extra shine effect can ruin your wedding pictures. This addtional shine to your face reflects the flashlight and makes you look dull in photographs. This is especially true for foundations, which are mineral based or contain titanium dioxide.

What you should do: While you go for the trial to your makeup artist before your wedding, just ask someone to click your pictures once he/she is done. This will give you a fair idea of how would your pictures come out in that makeup.

#4. Banish that double chin

There is nothing worse than spotting a double chin in your wedding photographs. To avoid this blunder, make sure that the camera is just above or at your eye level. Also, try tilting your head up and jutting your jaw out slightly.

What you should doThis technique needs a bit of practice. Make sure that you rehearse this in front of the mirror to make your pictures look natural.

If you have an outdoor wedding, you must try to find a dim-lit spot to get yourself clicked. Otherwise, ensure that you and your spouse are not standing directly below the light. Bright light can cast shadows on your face, hence making you look tired. In case you have dark circles that you have been trying to conceal through the makeup, the bright light may even accentuate them.

What you should do: Avoid harsh light and direct glare while getting your photographs clicked. Ask your wedding venue manager to arrange for an additional setup with dim lights, especially for your photo-session.

Getting clicked for hours on your own wedding can be really tiring. But smile is something that you can use as a tool to hide that tiredness. Smiling for countless hours during a photo session with your relatives might drive you crazy. But, you cannot make your guests feel offended. On the other hand, it is impossible to smile naturally for such a long period.

What you should do: Just think about those special moments you have had with your husband, and a beautiful smile will automatically light up your face.
